The entertainment industry continues to drift wildly to the left.
Celebrities are seemingly in a competition to see who can be the most “woke.”
And one “woke” pop star had the founding fathers rolling over in their graves.
Leftists in the entertainment industry are always looking for ways to be transgressive and draw reactions from conservatives or even liberals with traditional values.
They want “bold” art that shocks and offends middle America.
That’s why art exhibits with a crucifix in a jar of urine get presented and promoted.
Now “woke” pop star Lizzo poked at tradition when she performed with James Madison’s never-played-before crystal flute.
From The Daily Wire:
“Lizzo used a very special musical instrument during her D.C. concert performance Tuesday night. The 34-year-old rap artist claimed to be the first person ever to play a 200-year-old crystal flute lent to her by The Library of Congress. The instrument was previously owned by founding father James Madison, the fourth president of the United States…The singer played the flute, twerked onstage, then handed it back to the representative. Per NPR, it was then escorted back to the library safely with Capitol police as an escort.”
Lizzo said to the crowd, “This is crazy. I have to be really careful…This is from the early 1800s, this was a gift to James Madison from a French crystal flute designer to celebrate his second term. There was a fire…and the only two things that were saved were a portrait of George Washington and this crystal flute right here…I am the first person to ever play it, so you’re about to hear what it sounds like for the first time…Thank you to the Library of Congress for preserving our history and making history cool. History is freaking cool, you guys!”
After briefly playing the flute, she shouted, “B*tch, I just twerked and played James Madison’s flute from the 1800s!”
NOBODY HAS EVER HEARD THIS FAMOUS CRYSTAL FLUTE BEFORE
NOW YOU HAVE

The clip of Lizzo playing the flute went viral, but a separate video of her playing flutes at the Library of Congress did not.
The reason why is because she was dressed in normal attire, and treated the instruments with a degree of respect.
The Daily Wire continued:
“Before the concert, Lizzo visited the Library of Congress and played several flutes from their archive, the publication reported. The Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden exchanged tweets with the pop star before she visited D.C…Lizzo is a classically trained flutist and frequently performs with that instrument during concerts.”
Leftists don’t care that Lizzo played the flutes at the Library of Congress because there was nothing offensive about it.
But they loved the video of her twerking onstage with the flute because it showed the proper level of disrespect that leftists have for America and its founding.
